CIBJO, the World Jewellery Confederation, has launched a new website called “What is a Diamond”, in which the Swiss-based organization provides information for consumers and members of the jewellery and gemstone industry about the precise definitions of natural and lab-grown diamonds.

According to a press release, CIBJO used its Diamond Blue Book as its primary reference, and the definitions also comply with ISO Standard 18323 of the International Organisation for Standardisation.

CIBJO President Gaetano Cavalieri commented: “[…] Our goal is not to indicate what is better or more valuable, but rather to ensure that the public is able to distinguish between the different products in the marketplace. Consumer confidence, which is the bedrock of our industry, is completely dependent on people being able to make informed purchasing decisions”.
